Here's an article today in latercera.cl:
"Who they have shared closely with Nicolas Massú say that does not walk of very good humor. His fall in the second rounds of Wimbledon front of American Justin Gimelstob clarified that not yet can be shaken of the problems of confidence that have pursued it in a harmful year for the second national racquet, marked by them injured and the bad results.
After losing against the American, the national tennis player summarized his present moment. "I am not with the sufficient force, velocity and confidence to win, above all in the important moments. I lack a lot to be competitive. What more rage gives is me to lose against players to the ones that would gain in normal circumstances. It is not easy to be eaten these routs", the double Olympic champion said.
It is that the Chilean drags already many weeks of frustrations, in a first negative semester that left with injuries that they have impacted in bad results and that they finished for breaking the relation with his coach Patricio Rodriguez.
Today, the "Vampire" is without coach and to the doors to face a very hard phase, in which should renew near the 75% of the points that at present they maintain it in the position 29° of the ranking ATP.
The next tournament that will play Massú will be in Gstaad (Swiss), the last station without defense of units. Later it will leave to Amersfoort, Austria, where should renew semifinals. To the following week should defend the title in Kitzbühel.
With respect al name whose will guide the destinies of Massú, its father has said that only he has been able to talk on the phone with Argentine Gabriel Markus, the name that sounds stronger to happen Rodriguez. Markus supposedly he would be in Wimbledon, nevertheless the illness of his lady him imposibility of traveling to England. It is expected that in the next weeks they can be met in Europe to try to arrive at an arrangement that turns out to be vital for the "Vampire", therefore today more than ever needs someone that help him to recover the land lost."
